Everyone is distracted by their phones these days. The incessant beeping and lit screens offer a distraction from any task that you are attempting to avoid. This new era of the smartphone has left us less productive than ever and with distracted and distant dinner dates. It is easy to forget that smartphones were designed as a tool to enhance our everyday lives, not to hinder them. Reconnecting with the useful functions, rather than the distracting features (i.e., games and social media sites), we can use them to enrich our experiences away from the screen. Next time that you head out on a big game hunt, make sure to pack your phone — not to play Candy Crush, but to help you bag that tag.
Using your phone to its full potential while out in the field doesn’t mean that you need to bog down your phone with a ton of new apps. Your phone comes standard being GPS enabled to help you navigate your way through your favorite hunting grounds during the day or night. The satellite maps will allow you to see where territory boundaries lie, elevation gains and losses, as well as wind directions. You can drop pins in areas that you want to remember to visit again where you had seen your game eating or nesting but couldn’t get the shot right at that exact moment. The stock weather app will also give you the information you need about sunrise and sunset times.
If you were to use some apps that could help you track and locate your harvest, you will have plenty of room on the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, which can expand up to 255 GB of storage. With apps like iHunt Journal ($5 on Google Play), you can use that large amount of memory storage to upload photos, record weather conditions, GPS locations and more information that will help you in next year’s hunt. For the bird hunters out there, download a Ducks Unlimited app that will allow you to see real time migratory bird migrations.
Accessorize to Optimize
As useful of a tool that your phone can be, it is not going to do anything for you if it gets submerged in water or is broken by dropping out of your pocket. Consider getting a camouflage Otterbox Preserver case for your smartphone to protect it against the elements. It will protect your phone from hard impacts and keep it dry in its waterproof case. To make sure that your phone always has a charge, pack along the ammunition shell shaped Reload charger by Brakerton. It is lightweight and fits in your pocket, but just make sure to not confuse it with your actual ammo and load it in your gun! If you don’t want to feel tethered to a phone charger, equip yourself with a phone that has an available wireless charger so that you’re not having to worried about tangled wires while taking aim.
